(UnitedVoice.com) – It appears Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden, will have to start the Veep vetting process with someone other than Democrat Senator Amy Klobuchar.
New information reveals a history of Klobuchar declining to prosecute police officers involved in using excessive force during her eight years working as a Hennepin County attorney.

According to reports, one of those cases she failed to prosecute involved the recently arrested officer accused of killing George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 21. Derek Chauvin has been charged with third-degree murder and saw at least 10 conduct complaints in his 19-years of law enforcement service.
Klobuchar defended her position on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” show.

Biden says he spoke to the victim’s family on Friday saying George Floyd deserves justice. While he didn’t comment on Klobuchar’s lack of prosecutorial involvement in cases involving police officers, he did mention cops needed to be held to a higher standard and that the time to address uncomfortable truths between law enforcement and the communities they serve, has come.
